Germany's Scheder speaks after WAG third subdivision qualifications


DOHA: Comments from Sophie Scheder of Germany after the third subdivision of women’s qualifications at Aspire Dome on Saturday.

On the German team’s performance.

We gave our absolute best. We had a great start on the bars. Beam also went very well. On floor we had some little mistakes, but it was quite OK. On vault we did the best we could do. Overall it was a very good competition for us. We hope for the team final, and the chances are good.

On not performing her full level of difficulty on uneven bars (on which she won bronze at the 2016 Rio Olympics Games), and improving on the other three apparatus.

For these World Championships and especially for the team, I wanted to do a safe routine. I still haven’t reached my maximum on all apparatus, so there’s still something left.
